Law and Sheehan on Jeff Suppan

New, 18 comments

Both Keith Law and Joe Sheehan both weigh in on the Jeff Suppan signing, and both come to similar conclusions -- that Suppan is a bad fit for the Brewers, because he's a guy who is heavily dependent on having a quality defense behind him to produce.

Suppan's blossoming over the past three seasons, of course, has been with a terrific St. Louis defense behind him, and his awful stint in Boston featured Todd Walker and Nomar Garciaparra up the middle and Kevin Millar at first base...all of those guys, of course, are poor defensively.

Law also touches on the McCarthy/Danks trade, and points out that McCarthy's strong track record against lefties should help him in TBIA...
